11:35 Efficient BEV Manufacturing and Assembly Scale-Up Strategies At Optimal Cost

European automakers integrating BEVs into their manufacturing mix must choose between a native BEV production configuration and a blended BEV/ICEV setup.

There is a significant difference between producing 10,000 electric vehicles per year and producing 300,000 to 500,000. Production setups must be scalable to meet high demand while also remaining flexible enough to meet new demands in future generations. The next panel compares some of the most high-profile scale-up manufacturing and assembly strategies and discusses the optimal way forward.
